  • I see classes assigned to the posted date that I think are not part of the original Twenty Eleven theme. Perhaps you are using a modified theme, or a plugin has been installed to manage the dates.

    If the theme has been modified, you probably need to contact the person who did the modifications. If not, examine the installed plugins to see if one of them might be affecting the date.

    what are your setting under

    dashboard – settings – general – date format ?

    Hi, thanks for the replies.
    As far as I am aware I am using the original 2011 theme (downloaded via the WordPress site) as I don’t have the skills to change it! The only plug-ins I am using are Dynamic Headers by Nicasio Design, which I have now deactivated.I have also downloaded the Jetpack. Would either of them be affecting the date? If so, how would I check to see?
    The date settings are F j, Y.

    Any further thoughts?

    If you edit the Welcome post, what is the date shown by ‘Published on’ just above the Update button on the right?

    Interesting! I think that’s solved the problem. The date in the ‘Published on’ section was showing the year as 0201. I edited this manually to correct the year to 2012. This corrected the date in the original post. I then tried creating another new post and this time the date came up correctly. Thanks a lot. I love the WordPress community!
